Event 1: Quality Over Quantity

Level 5: (150/300/25)
Total Entries: 68

Kenneth Ball (Teaneck, NJ)

Kenneth Ball (Teaneck, NJ)

“He’s played three hands, and has all the chips.”

Kenneth Ball (Teaneck, NJ) might not have all the chips, but he might just be the chip leader of the Event 1 Survivor as play heads into Level 6.

Jesse Mason, our defending EPT Champion from an earlier post, just let everyone know just how Kenneth has been able to amass such a big stack so early in this event, as he’s using the quality of his hands, more so than the quantity.

We may have missed the first two hands he played, but we were right there for the third, as Kenneth opened the action from late position with a raise to 2,000 and was raised all-in from a player in the small blind.

Kenneth instantly called, tabling {Kh}{kd} and was well ahead of his unknown opponent, who held {Jc}{Jh}.

The board would run out clean for Kenneth and he was completing the double up, putting himself near the 30,000 chip mark and in a good position to “survive” in Event 1.

With a “fast” structure to this event, Kenneth’s strategy of play might not work later on, but so far, it’s doing to job, as he is one of the bigger stacks in the room as the late registration period begins to wind down.

Players have until the end of Level 7 to late register for Event 1 of the Bar Poker Open.
